3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark amber with a slowly diminishing head. Aroma dominated by malts as expected. Very smooth and flavorful. The hazelnut really comes through in the flavor. A nice fall ale.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a very clear very light brown with about a finger of head. Oats and toffee in the odor. Tastes different than I’d expect from the nose. Very watery with a little bit of bitterness that goes into a slightly almost skunky aftertaste. It’s not bad for how cheap it is, but not worth recommending.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
It pours dark amber with excellent clarity and a small but lingering head. The aroma is average to above average with malts, nuts, and sugar. The body falls in the thin to medium range. The taste is also average to above average for the Nut Brown style with a slightly more presumptuous bitter bite on the tail end. Not a bad beer on the whole.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled, as a part of a fall sampler pack. Moderately dark brown in color with a slight orange tint. Large, light-tan head is mostly lasting. Moderately malty nose with lightly toasty hazelnut with some slightly sour bready/yeastiness. Flavor is very mildly sweet, mildly-to-moderately sour and heavy on wheat bread and some copper metallics. Stale bread finish is slightly sour and mildly bitter. As an aside, we used a bottle of this to make Beer-Pretzel Caramels (from Food Network magazine, Google it) that turned out very tasty.
